LESS THAN THE DUST 

From "India's Love Lyrics.' 
By Laurence Hope 
. (Adela Florence Nicolson). 

Less than the dust, beneath thy 
Chariot wheel, 

Less than the rust, that never 
stained thy Sword. 

Less than the trust thou hast in 
me, O Lord, ^ 
Even less than these! 

Less than the weed that grows 

beside thy door, 
L6SS than the speed of hours spent 

far from thee, 

Less than the need thou hast in 
life of me. 



Since I, O Lord, am nothing unto 
thee. 

See here thy Sword, I make it 
keen and bright, 

Love's last reward. Death, coraes^ 
to me tonight, 
Farewell, Zahir-u-dm. 
Sent in by L. D. E., Boston.
